Wiguna Merta Group
In this Group: Ni Ketut, Ni Komang, Ni Komang, Ni Made, Mistinah, Ni Komang, Ni Nengah, Ni Made, Ni Made
The Wiguna Merta group is made up of nine women who are neighbors in the same village in Melaya, West Bali. The group is seeking a loan of Rp 13,500,000 and each member will receive Rp 1,500,000. The group was formed out of these women’s common interest in raising pigs to supplement the family income and out of their interest in education on best practices for pig raising. This is their third loan with MUK.

Ni Ketut, age 40, is the head of the Wiguna Merta group. She is married and has children who are still in school. Her husband earns money as a farmer, but Ni Ketut would like to help support her family with her pig raising business. She will use the loan to buy six local species piglets. She plans to sell the piglets after three months for use as pig roll. With the increase in household income, she hopes to be able to pay school fees.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
